Capture or another tool) the document? Not an elegant solution, perhaps,
but quite possibly faster than retyping, if this approach is feasible
for you.

Other similar possibilities:

1. Print/save the file as a TIF image (all font info disappears) and use
an OCR on that.

2. Try one of the PDF to Word convertors - I have had decent luck with
PDF Converter Professional from Scansoft (now called Nuance, as I
recall). I don't know what it would do on missing/corrupted fonts
though. Roger, if you want me to give this a shot on a small version of
the file, please feel free to e-mail some of the pages (extracted from
the PDF) to me and I will give it a shot.
